|Free-Spinning-Tunnel Investigation of a 1/17 Scale Model of the Cessna T-37A Airplane - Bowman, James S., Jr.|
Results of an investigation of a dynamic model in the Langley 20-foot free-spinning tunnel are presented. Erect spin and recovery characteristics were determined for a range of mass distributions and center-of-gravity positions. The effects of lateral displacement of the center of gravity, engine rotation, nose strakes, and increased rudder area were investigated.

|THE INFLUENCE OF THE WIND ON THE ERROR AND PROBABILITY OF LOCALIZATION - NON|
THE SYSTEMATIC ERROR IN LOCATING THE SOUNDING BALLOON CAUSED BY THE INFLUENCE OF THE WIND IS DISCUSSED IN TERMS OF THE DISPLACEMENT DURING THE INTERVALS BETWEEN INTERROGATIONS. THE ERRORS INTRODUCED BY WINDS PARALLEL TO THE TRACE, WINDS PERPENDICULAR TO THE TRACE, INDETERMINATE WINDS, AND WIND DIRECTION ARE ANALYZED. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT IF ONLY ERRORS OF DISTANCE ARE CONSIDERED, IT IS ADVANTAGEOUS TO INCREASE THE INTERVAL BETWEEN INTERROGATIONS...

|Water Surface Currents, Short Gravity-Capillary Waves and Radar Backscatter - Atakturk, Serhad S.|
Despite their importance for air-sea interaction and microwave remote sensing of the ocean surface, intrinsic properties of short gravity-capillary waves are not well established. This is largely due to water surface currents and their effects on the direct measurements of wave parameters conducted at a fixed point. Frequencies of small scale waves propagating on a surface which itself is in motion, are subject to Doppler shifts...

|Disk mass densities in edge-on spiral galaxies - Rupen, Michael P|
Very Large Array (VLA) observations of the neutral hydrogen (HI) gas in two nearby edge-on spirals (NGC 4565 and NGC 891) successfully resolve the thickness of the gas layers in both disks over a wide range in radii. The combination of B, C, and D array data produces a 4 arcsec (approx. 200 pc) beam and 21 km s(exp -1) velocity resolution, combined with sensitivity to structures as large as 18 arcmin (approx...

|PHASE TRANSFORMATIONS DURING THERMAL TREATMENT OF ALLOY VT18 - KOROBOV, O. S.|
THE VT18 ALLOY WAS INVESTIGATED DURING HEAT TREATMENT, AND IT WAS SHOWN THAT AT TEMPERATURES BELOW 930 DEG, THE ALPHA SUB 2-PHASE AND SOME OF THE BETA-PHASE ARE PRESENT, APART FROM THE ALPHA-MATRIX. DURING AGING, THE CHANGES ARE DETERMINED BY THE FORMATION OF THE ORDERED ALPHA SUB 2-PHASE. AFTER LONGER EXPOSURE, THE BETA-PHASE DECOMPOSES. THE INSTABILITY OF VT18, AT WORKING TEMPERATURES, IS DUE TO THE ORDERING OF THE ALPHA-SOLID SOLUTION AND DECOMPOSITION OF THE BETA-PHASE.

|Summary of Available Data Relating to Reynolds Number Effects on the Maximum Lift Coefficients of Swept-Back Wings - Sweberg, Harold H.|
The available foreign and American data relating to Reynolds number effects on the maximum lift coefficients of swept-back wings are summarized and discussed. The data show that at low Reynolds numbers (below about 2.0 x 10(exp 6)) higher maximum lift coefficients were measured in most cases for moderately swept-back wings than for unswept wings of similar plan form; at high Reynolds numbers, however, increasing sweepback resulted in decreasing maximum lift coefficients...

|Equal-Curvature X-Ray Telescopes - Saha, Timo T.|
We introduce a new type of x-ray telescope design; an Equal-Curvature telescope. We simply add a second order axial sag to the base grazing incidence cone-cone telescope. The radius of curvature of the sag terms is the same on the primary surface and on the secondary surface. The design is optimized so that the on-axis image spot at the focal plane is minimized. The on-axis RMS (root mean square) spot diameter of two studied telescopes is less than 0.2 arc-seconds...

In October 1958, the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA) was asked to absorb the Army Ballistic Missile Agency (ABMA) space group, but an agreement was reached two months later for the group to remain with the Army while being responsive to NASA. This decision was to be reconsidered and reversed within a year.

|GCM Studies on the Interactions Between Photosynthesis and Climate at Diurnal to Decadal Time Scales - Collatz, G. James|
Transpiration, a major component of total evaporation from vegetated surfaces, is an unavoidable consequence of photosynthetic carbon fixation. Because of limiting soil moisture and competition for solar radiation plants invest most of their fixed carbon into structural and hydraulic functions (roots and stems) and solar radiation absorption (leaves). These investments permit individuals to overshadow competitors and provide for transport of water from the soil to the leaves where photosynthesis...
